Yesterday marked the end of my Philosophie cleanse. I can’t tell you how great it was. After way too much fun in the holidays (i.e. food), it was fabulous to saturate my system with vitamins, minerals, hydration…it felt like pure energy!
I did have some headaches that seemed to come with the whole detox thing, but it wasn’t something unbearable.
I drank a lot of tea.
Teavivre sent me some authentic green tea straight from China, so that was fun to add to my cleansing beverages! So fresh tasting…
Friday’s menu ended up being a Cacao Magic smoothie for breakfast, kale salad for lunch, homemade soup for dinner, and cottage cheese with almonds for a snack. I also had some hot lemon and honey with cayenne pepper (my new favourite beverage!).
On Saturday, my Mom and sister helped me move to the city, just for this semester. Most of you probably know already, but I’m studying Exercise Science at a college. I also had a blood test that day that I had to fast for (until 2 pm!), so with all the busy-ness I had a modified smoothie from a shop and then a big salad for dinner. I snacked on almonds and chocolate almond milk later on, when I was all settled in.
Today I enjoyed using my new Magic Bullet to make a Green Dream smoothie for breakfast before church. Lunch was, again, a kale salad (yup, I’m in a rut). I had some apple w/ PB, a couple mandarins, and tea for a snack. Dinner was baked yam with coconut oil and chamomile tea.
I totally recommend this cleanse to anyone – the whole experience was really positive for me. Sophie is there to answer any questions at any time and the products/supplements she will send you along with the food plan (which, as you can see, is quite flexible) will speed along the detox and make it more effective. It was also nice to lose a couple pounds without too much effort. We’ll see if they stay off…but I’m not too worried as that wasn’t the point of the cleanse. I really wanted to refresh my tastebuds as to WHAT healthy food tastes like…and stop my holiday sugar splurge in it’s tracks.
To help with the whole “cleansing thing”, I also took special supplements, drybrushed, took hot baths, drank cleansing tea, and did some oil pulling before I brushed my teeth. Oh, and LOTS of water! For a mega load of cleansing tips, check this post out!
I hope you enjoyed following my food diary the last couple posts! Stayed tuned for my next post because there’s something cool happening (think, my favourite product ever and then you winning it!).
If you’ve ever done a cleanse of some sort, tell me about it. What’s your favourite kind of tea? (I’m so obsessed with it right now!)
